Redirecting Family Planning Funds from Planned Parenthood in Tennessee - Yes on SB 2494

TN Right to Life

After years of focused efforts by pro-life lawmakers and principled leadership by Governor Haslam, Tennessee successfully implemented policy in 2011 which has resulted in millions of tax dollars being re-directed away from Planned Parenthood facilities in our state. Under Haslam's direction, an administrative process was established which prioritizes public health departments to receive the public funds appropriated for family planning programs rather than private non-profit organizations such as Planned Parenthood. Prior to 2011, Planned Parenthood affiliates in Tennessee received more than $1.1 million dollars annually.

As Governor Haslam prepares to leave office, Tennessee Right to Life and pro-life legislators seek to make this administrative policy permanent by codifying it in state law.

UPDATE: The Senate passed SB 2494 by Senator Jack Johnson (R-Franklin) on Monday, March 5 by a vote of 25-1-1.
